I'd have to listen more carefully next time, but I get almost a clicking sound. Can't remember which ones I need to switch from. I'll check tomorrow and report back.

The door flaps and actuator arms need some grease. If it continues like that, the plastic actuator arms may break.

I have no idea if they're easily accessible on the Cruze or not, but my old car you just had to pop off the sides of the center console.

Thanks for the tip. I will have to look into that. It seems to only do it when it's really cold out.

Thanks Jasmine, but I have 162K miles on my car. Warranty has long since expired. I do appreciate the offer though! :)

I've noticed mine making a quieter version of that noise. I hope its not like my old Chevy Cruze. It had a motor of some sort
to change the modes and it wound up stripping the gears on it. It was buried so far in the dash it was like 6 hours labor just to get to it. Lets hope this isn't the same deal.Maybe there is someone is out there with a service manual that can chime in.

That's exactly what I am afraid of.

It is the same deal, the mode control has a motor with gears and a cam. The first line on SI is "Remove the instrument panel assembly".

I have Chilton's online thru my library account.I checked the repair and it is not a big deal,the removal of parts to get to the motors is modular. A few screws etc. and you're in.Not like my old Cobalt POS.

Cobalt had to have the blower motor cut out, at least these are removable as well

I wouldn't consider taking the whole dash panel out "minor", but creaking is in most cases normal.
